She's going for $100,000 with her +1 lifeline still available.

$100,000: As a show of good faith in recent peace talks, what did North Korea do so that it once again shared a time zone with South Korea?
A - set its clocks ahead one hour
B - set its clocks back one hour
C - set its clocks ahead a half-hour
D - set its clocks back a half-hour

Julia is torn between two answers. She did a podcast episode about timezones and she knows that there was a half-hour difference. She calls on Lauren, her +1 and co-host of the podcast. The change was earlier this year. Lauren's opinion is that it was half an hour behind, but Julia thinks it was earlier because they wanted to be ahead of South Korea.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer: C (set its clocks ahead a half-hour)
Julia wins $50,000.

Lauren had the right idea. Since Pyongyang is west of Seoul, it's more likely North Korean time was earlier to begin with.

The letter of the answer and the text of the answer choice don't match. Which is correct? I'm happy to edit once I know what's right. --Bob
